Won't Happen in the US; most Americans are Ignorant and Uneducated
The education system in the United States is atrocious. We've raised at least two generations of drooling idiots. Don't believe me? Well we elected George W. Bush not once but twice. We're stuck in Iraq with no idea how to disengage. And Fox news is one of the most popular cable news networks in the United States.
Sadly we Americans have let our country reach an all-time low.
I regularly pass out the BJ21 "blackjack game to avoid" basic strategy cards to friends and people I meet at the low limit blackjack games.
I refuse to play poker at any table with less than seven active players. In these cases, I stay in my seat and point out the house is already taking $100 to $200 an hour off the table with the rake and bad beat drop. And that professional poker players think we are idots at the lower limit poker games for playing a game in which the house takes such a high percentage of the winnings. Usually this has some affect. Either the rake is lowered or the floor immediately starts trying to recruit new players to fill the table. If the floor does nothing, about half the time the table quits playing.
If I run into a friend at the roulette table or if anyone asks me about roulette. I tell them I would like to play and used to, but since the casino double the odds against us by putting in the double zero tables, I would feel like an idiot playing now, but I still ask the roulette floor man where the single zero tables are.
Also, we may have some hope due to a different issue. The indian casinos continue to expand nation wide. Maybe competition will result in better games being offered. I have witness the removal of continous shuffle machines at a casino, due to a new casino opening up down the road. They also added surrender as an option to the blackgames. And they increased the amount of comps they were issuing as an attempt to keep their customer's from going to the new casino.
We will never have the success that australia did, but we can have a small impact on the casinos bottom line, as well as, letting the casino know some customers aren't ignorant.
One voice or association that we can all back as members with the implication that casinos with certain detrimental rules will be avoided by the membership, coupled with continually informing the public of why such rules are unfair to all players.
The American system seems so easily manipulated and the voters so easily...
On January 20th 2001 I feared that future historians and analysts might be compelled to used some form of the word catastrophe to describe the coming four years. My fears were unfortunately and profoundly realized.
I usually throw away flyers without looking at them.
If I was to be handed one by a travel agency as part of a package of information that may save me some money, I would probably read it on the flight or view it at home. Maybe airlines might be convinced to hand them out with their tickets with a Vegas destination.
